The NGT gave this decision while hearing the petitions of Satish Kumar, Mahavir Singh. The petition said that pollution was spreading due to the burning of plastic, leather, rubber, motor engine oil and the operation of illegal factories on the farm land.
Officially declaring helplessness
The NGT chairman, Adarsh Kumar's Bench said, "If the city fails to control air pollution, the Delhi government will be fined by the Central Pollution Control Board. Despite clear orders from the Authority, there was hardly any actions taken to fulfill them.
Under the nose of officials, the law continued to be broken and timely pollution continued to grow.
Officers did not take any strong steps except expressing helplessness and sarcasm.
Pollution is always limited to Delhi
AAP leader Atishi said- “On the issue of air pollution, the ruckus is restricted to Delhi only, while satellite images of NASA have revealed that in other parts of the country, Parali is burnt on a large scale. The Delhi Government is taking steps to control pollution on its behalf. That's why we are trying to bring e-vehicles and e-buses”.
Air quality in Delhi is getting worse
Even in Delhi, the quality of air is very poor.
Officials say pollution will increase further in the next day. According to the pollution control board, PM 2.5373 recorded in the Air Quality Index, which falls into very poor category.
